There is no reef around since the jacks are mostly on the sand running west to east, except for the eastern end where the line of jacks turns south near the first patch of rocks. It is about 1/2 mile walk from the Dania Pier parking lot (maybe closer if you pay the $6 entrance fee to John Lloyd park) and the hourly parking rates have increased to offset the city's costs for renovation of the marina. The main shower is another 1/8 mile from the pier. Parking and a long walk make this dive site a bit of a hassle, and is only worth it if conditions are good. I've heard that reports of bad visibility are the norm and you should only go if weather is pristine and the water is calm/flat. I didn't find lobster but did see a small nurse shark. This is an OK dive site, but should be done at least once in your life.
